Hi guys, I have a problem with my factory installed Magneti Marelli SatNav unit in my car. Basically the problem is as follows: When the car is started, the SatNav starts up and the Bose amplifier supplies sound to the speakers for approx 2-3 seconds before it turns silent for approx 10-15 seconds, and then the cycle repeats it self again.
(2 seconds with sound followed up by 10-15 seconds of silence, and then 2 seconds of sound followed up by 10-15 seconds of silence, and so forth…)
I also should mention, if the car has been standing still for a longer period of time, say over night, everything works fine the first time I start the car, but if I stop the car (turn off the ignition) and start it up again the problem arises again.
I thought for a long time that the problem lied within the factory installed Bose amp, but I have installed a brand new Bose amp and the problem persists.
The car is a 2005 model Alfa Romeo GT 1.9.
I have also checked the software in the SatNav unit, which is the 04.08 version.
While performing the diagnostics check the AM/FM was coloured red.
Does anybody know what the problem might be and how to solve it?
